How-To: Faux Succulents from Pistachio Shells


If you’ve tried your green thumb at growing succulents but still can’t seem to keep them alive, why not go faux? I love these fake succulents made from pistachio shells and hot glue! They look quite pretty in their au naturel state, but are made even more dynamic by dying them different colors and clustering them together.

Since succulents are a desert plant, it means you can’t keep them outdoors in the winter. However, with this clever craft you can still get the look of a living wreath to spruce up your front door all winter long.
